On this day of Halloween, while goblins and princesses are about to roam the streets, my eye keeps getting caught by this colour which creates an emotional reaction within me every time…orange. I have confessed to this many times, I am more than partial to this bright hue.
Whether it is because I am a 70’s child and I grew up surrounded by burnt orange shag wall-to-wall carpeting, or because I have an infatuation with the brand whose boxes are eponymous of luxury, I couldn’t tell you but there is something about orange that really makes me happy.
I have long looked for an opportunity to do a whole room in orange, but marriage being what it is, I had to come to terms with a happy medium of orange accents in most rooms. That being said, I have to agree that it was probably the wisest choice as these pumpkin hued throw pillows, kitchen tools and bath mats give energy to each room without being to overpowering.
In small doses or in massive splashes, I would advise anyone to try a bit of the orange remedy. After all wasn’t it a smart physician who said… an orange a day keeps the doctor away?
